Company needed to build complete solution for the homeowner to control the water inlet, leak detection and remote valve control.
Results / Outcomes
Used Off the shelf components to realize the Gateway – Link7688
Silabs MCU EM358x used for end node realization
Cloud and Mobile App implementation for the watermeter solution
Protocols Used :
Thread, MQTT, 6LowPan
The water meter provides monitoring of the primary inlet
Interoperate with thread devices and Nest ecosystem
Off-the-shelf Hardware (beaglebone Black) was used with the Linux application(cpp), Silicon labs radio chip for Thread protocol, MQTT to connect to the server.
Express framework based node.js REST API server, AWS RDS database, MongoDB and AWS S3 for storage, sms notifications using Twilio server, push notifications via Google Cloud Messaging and Apple Push Notification Service, eMail using SMTP server.
AWS platform for hosting the cloud server:
Mosquito MQTT broker
Mobile App Design and Development
MVC architecture, encrypted databases, realtime notifications using
MQTT & GCM, REST API based alert generation, Followed the recommended design patterns from Apple and Google.
